Melodic Treks: A Star Trek Music Podcast

Star Trek Bands: Five Year Mission and Warp 11.

There are many bands out in the cosmos that compose and write Star Trek songsā€”and two of them are here on Earth. With bands like these playing not only conventions but concerts, its yet another string to the fandom and creative diversity that Star Trek invokes. In this episode of Melodic Treks we look at the formation and background of these two bands, their genesis and history, their very different musical styles, and their lyrical approaches that are as different as a Gorn is from an Orion.

The Holographic, Operatic Doctor.

Previously on Melodic Treks we talked about Robert Picardo and his parody singing. But we're not always about the actors and composers, sometimes we're about the characters themselves! And since you really can't get enough holographic melodies, we're joined in this episode of Melodic Treks by Charlynn Schmiedt and Tristan Riddell of To The Journey to talk about the opera-loving Doc. Char and Tristan add their own unique flavor to the discussion as we delve into a variety of episodes covering every aspect of the EMH.
